I (Sophia) encountered a phrase the other day that said, “You can’t always view the world through rose-coloured glasses.” For some reason, this has stuck with me. In some ways, I think the statement is valid as we cannot always live in blissful ignorance; sometimes, we have to take off our “rose-coloured glasses” to be realistic and face situations with courage. However, I don’t think that one can live a life without putting on their “rose-coloured glasses” occasionally. Especially during COVID, we need to be motivated by something positive and genuine. Take time to appreciate small things that bring you happiness. With some of the lifted restrictions, we can re-experience the joy of activities that we once took for granted before the quarantine. When you wear your “rose-coloured glasses,” life can be vibrant and exciting, creating an outlook that views opportunities as a chance for learning and self-growth.
